William Jessup University September 27, th Anniversary
Finish Strong Acts 20:24 I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace.
The way you live now is completely controlled by what you believe about your future! 5
✦ 1. Develop Partnerships ✦ Phil. 1:3-6 ✦ 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

✦ 2. Devote your Heart to your calling ✦ Phil. 3:12-14 ✦ 12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
✦ 3. Decide to Rejoice always ✦ Phil. 4:4-7 ✦ 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
✦ 4. Do Great things for God ✦ Phil. 4:13 ✦ 13 I can do everything through him who gives me strength. ✦
